CORO di NINFE e PASTORI
Lasciate i monti,
lasciate i fonti,
Ninfe vezzose e liete.
E in questi prati
Ai balli usati
Vago il bel piè rendete.


Qui miri il sole
Vostre carole,
Più vaghe assai di quelle
Ond'alla luna,
La notte bruna,
Danzano in ciel le stelle.

Vieni, Imeneo, deh, vieni,
E la tua face ardente
Sia quasi un sol nascente
Ch'apporti a questi amanti i dì sereni
E lunge omai disgombre
Degli affanni e del duol gli orrori e l'ombre.

English Libretto or Translation:

CHORUS of NYMPHS & SHEPHERDS
Leave the mountains,
leave the fountains,
charming, happy nymphs,
and in these meadows
rejoice your fair feet
with your accustomed dances.

Here let the sun behold
your roundelays,
lovelier far than those
which the stars in heaven
dance to the moon
in the darkness of night.

Come, Hymen, ah come,
and let your fiery torch
be like a rising sun
to bring these lovers peaceful days
and henceforth banish afar
the horrors and shadows of anguish and grief.
